Yearly Overview

For the newcomers (and those of you who forgot) here is a brief overview of the year.  Each month you will receive a newsletter via email and copies will be available in the waiting room. These are very important and contain all the information you will need. We do a lot of activities so please keep up with your newsletters.  NEED ANYTHING? PLEASE ASK? Tuition is billed monthly and is due on the first class of the month even if you are absent.  After the second Saturday, a $15 late fee per account will apply.  Please note, tuition is broken up into 10 monthly payments so even if your child misses some classes you are still responsible for the entire payment.  If tuition becomes one month delinquent your child will not be able to participate in class until the account is made current.  We will be covering a lot of info in each class so please do your best to come to every class.  I also sell everything and anything needed for classes.  If you have any issue with anything please address it with me or Miss Jocelyn, Assistant Director only.  My staff and I do all we can to make every year more successful than the last so please help us keep an open line of communication.  Yo can personally email us at info@PirouetteDanceAcademy.com or call at 508-672-1423.  Thank you and we look forward to our best year yet!!!
